Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis Signed Typed Letter (PSA Graded MINT 9)
Out of stock
In the course of nearly any institution’s history, there comes the need for a despot. Baseball’s, of course, was Kenesaw Mountain Landis whose unyielding autocracy directed the game’s conduct from 1920 until his passing in 1944, whereupon he was posthumously enshrined in the Hall of Fame. His signature looms as one of the scarcer in our industry. But here presented is one of his rendered signings on a brief, typed letter dispatched to a minor league executive. The one-page message, addressed to a Howard Pennertz, reads “Your letter of May 11, presenting claim against the Grand Forks Club, has been forwarded to Judge William G. Bramham, President, National Association, Durham, N. C., as he has jurisdiction of claims of Minor League players. Very truly yours, [signed] K. M. Landis.” The 8 1/2″ x 11″ medium is about EX, qualified almost exclusively by minor ink transfer as the sheet was compact-folded before his signature was completely dry. Fortunately, Landis’ penning, itself, isn’t smeared in the least, and it projects at a strength of “9”.
